Jelly Bean Prayer


Did you know that the colors of jelly beans are colors that have meaning in the Bible?

RED is for the blood He gave: ~when Jesus was dying on the cross for us, the nails in His hands and feet made Him bleed. "...the blood of Jesus, [God's] Son, purifies us from all sin. 1 John 1:7

GREEN is for the grass He made: ~God wants us to enjoy His wonderful creation. He makes me lie down in green pastures. Psalm 23:2

YELLOW is for the sun so bright: ~Like a new sunrise, Jesus rose from the grave on Easter morning. We believe that Jesus died and rose again. 1 Thessalonians 4:14

ORANGE is for the edge of night: ~The Holy Spirit's fire burns within us and leads us. He [God] guided them with light from the fire all night. Psalm 78:14

BLACK is for the sins we made: ~Our sins darken our hearts and make us live in darkness. I am sending you to them to open their eyes and turn them from darkness to light. Acts 26: 17-18

WHITE is for the grace He gave: ~We can become pure as snow when we let Jesus' blood wash us clean. Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow. Isaiah 1:18

PURPLE is for the hours of sorrow: ~Purple is the royal color, a reminder that Jesus is our King. They put a purple robe on him [Jesus], then twisted together a crown of thorns and set it on him. Mark 15:17

PINK is for a new tomorrow: ~and for every day God gives us.
